A Kind of Psychic Impulse

Writes our friend from Hubcap City, "After hearing of the death of James Purdy, I was led to your blog by 'a kind of psychic impulse,' an impulse very similar to the one that led Purdy to send his unpublished manuscript to Edith Sitwell. Your Purdy coverage was most helpful. I followed your link to the rumpus, and read the essay there. I’d forgotten about the 'shocking and painful scene of ******** **************' in Eustace Chisholm and the Works."
